Like the name suggests, Salsa Cubana has its origin in Cuba. There it formed from a combination of Son, Cha-Cha-Cha and Rumba and became the dance of the less wealthy population.
Today in Switzerland you can find Salsa parties all over the place, including Salsa Cubana. In this course we will not only teach you how to do figures, but also what the music is composed of, how you move your whole body to the rhythm and most importantly, how to enjoy the whole combination. Next to the dance, we will also try to teach you the relaxed atmosphere of cuba so that you'll be ready at all times to dance and enjoy.
Welcome to Salsa Cubana 1!
Salsa Cubana has it all: singing melodies, moving rhythms, and a rich history and culture reflected in the yarning lyrics. With some exercising you will learn playful, spinning, and complex knotted figures. These mastered, enjoy the Cuban way of dancing as a couple or show off with your friends in a neatly synchronized Rueda de Casino. And that isn’t it, Salsa Cubana prepares you for numerous other Latin American dances like Son Cubano, Merengue, Bolero, and many more!
¡Ven a bailar!
